Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 11 Apr, 2019
  • Man Suffers Life-Threatening Injuries After Suspicious Explosion, Fire At Surrey Pub: RCMP

SURREY, B.C. — RCMP in Surrey, B.C., say an explosion and fire at a local pub is suspicious and may have left a local man with life-threatening injuries.


The blaze at Jack's Public House, in the 9000 block of 152 Street, broke out early Thursday.


Witnesses at the scene reported hearing a blast and an RCMP news release says a man was seen running from the area.


A search by a police dog could not locate the man, but police say paramedics were called to a Surrey home about an hour later for a victim suffering severe injuries that could be linked to a fire.


Fire officials and RCMP continue to investigate the cause of the blaze.


Police are also appealing for anyone who may have surveillance or dashcam video from the area that could move the case forward.
